Apple biscuit base
Cook 12 hours before assembling, wrap with foil and refrigerate!
- Bring eggs and cream to the room temperature.
- Melt the chocolate in a microwave or in a water bath. Sift the flour and the baking powder.
- Peel the apples and grate it on a coarse grater (if the apples are very juicy, do not use the juice).
- Whip the eggs with sugar until lush lightening (4 minutes). Pour the cream in a thin stream (don’t stop whipping!), then stir in the cooled chocolate. Add the grated apples, and mix. At last, add the flour in 2-3 passes, stirring the dough quickly enough with a spatula each time until smooth.
- Preheat the oven to 170C (338F). Put the dough in a mold or a ring with a diameter of 16 cm (6.3 inch). Bake it for about 25 minutes, focusing on a dry toothpick. Cool the biscuit on a wire rack, and remove it from the mold. Wrap in foil and refrigerate overnight.
Before baking the cheesecake, cut a little biscuit from the top, using a string.
Crumb for the cheesecake
- Dry the pecans in a dry frying pan and grind them into coarse crumbs.
- Mix the flour with cocoa, sugar, cereal and pecans in a deep bowl. Set aside.
- Mix the butter and a maple syrup, over medium heat, stirring (the saucepan should be capacious, as the mass will increase its volume!). Melt them completely and bring to a boil. Add 1 tsp. water and, stirring continuously, cook for a minute. Then add the baking soda and boil again for a minute, stirring.
- Remove from the heat and immediately pour into the dry mixture, stir first with a spatula, then, when the mixture cools slightly, with your hands.
- Cover the baking sheet with a silicone mat or parchment. Evenly spread out the mixture over the surface. Refrigerate for at least an hour.
- Preheat the oven to 180C (356F). Cook for 18 to 20 minutes. Cool and place in a hermetically sealed jar. Set about a fifth of the crumb aside for decoration.
